The software complex “Asteroids and Comets” offers an opportunity to solve a set of research problems connected with asteroids and comets in web-access mode. The complex not only provides the user with a certain amount of information on the issues, but also gives him the opportunity to perform some calculations and research in remote access. The list of these problems is rather wide. One of the key part of the complex is the computing-analytical package intended to predict approaches of minor bodies to the Earth and the Moon, and to estimate the collision probability. To improve object orbital elements the optical and radar observations from the catalogue of the Minor Planet Centre (USA, Cambridge) as well as radar observations of Quasar VLBI network are used.
